After 4 1/2 miles of fighting boulders and brush along streambed, Donner Party gave up here, and on August 22, 1846, climbed steep hill to southwest. A survivor wrote, "We doubled teams, almost every yoke in the train (of 23 wagons) being required to pull up each wagon."

Mormon Pioneers a year later built road through to mouth of canyon with four hours labor.
